Cake with horse motif

Cake with horse motif in rolled fondant

Since we moved, my daughter have found a new activity instead of the ballet classes she took while we lived in Copenhagen. Horses!

The local riding school is located just down the road from where we live and last weekend, we were invited to a little social gathering with the rest of my daughters riding team. I could not think of any better idea than to bring a cake with a horse motif.

The cake was the chocolate chip cake that I have posted about earlier this month and it was layered with chocolate ganache. The horse motif was cut out of rolled fondant icing and the mane is piped with royal icing. The small pink flowers gave the cake a sweet girlie touch.

All the girls loved it!

Happy Caking!

      The cake is covered with a thin layer of rolled fondant. The horse motif is also a thin layer of fondant but the mane is piped royal icing. I don’t recall is was too much rolled fondant….
      Make sure that you cut out the horses head before covering the cake. It is more easy to place it one the cake when it has dried a little.
